This has nothing to do with fitness, nutrition or motivation, but I had to share something interesting that happened last week.
I don’t know if you have seen the website “People of Walmart” with pictures of crazy, outlandish people doing strange things and wearing off the wall “outfits”. I have always wanted to see one for myself, so I always scan the aisles to make sure I don’t miss one. Like most great moments in life, they happen when you least expect, and while rushing through the aisles, paying more attention to my shopping list, I spotted a prime POW out of the corner of my eye. It was a classic double-take, I stopped dead in my tracks, saying to myself, “THEY DO EXIST!” The Taylor Swift song I had in my head quickly changed to the quiet, whispered British voice from the nature BBC documentaries, “the illusive purple, cropped-topped POW has been spotted. This magnificant specimin is sporting nearly two inches of exposed crack, making her a true trophy POW”. Trying not to be too obvious, I moved in, camera turned on and ready to record the sighting, but the opportunity never presented itself. I will let you use your imigination to fill in the details, but I will add that she should definitely not have been wearing what she was wearing, and glitter was not meant to be used like that.
Most weeks that would have been the high point of my week(is that sad?), but seeing my first POW was easily topped by girls Night out with a few friends at the new Chocolate Bar downtown. I enjoyed a Pomogranite Mojito with a 3 cheese Grilled Cheese with Garlic Tomatoe Bisque Soup. Not the healthiest, but it sure was tasty, especially the fried carbs dripping with grease. I can rationalize anything, but in this case, I will just say it’s okay to have a cheat meal once in a while! We were having a great time, but as 8:30 approached, loud techno music started booming overhead, making it difficult to talk to my friends at the same table. It wasn’t even 10 yet, isn’t that the time that the clubs get going and everyone starts their night? Or am I just old and cranky, “kids these days…”.
On to the importand stuff… I managed to work out five times last week, a combo of Turbo Fire and Body Beast. Body Beast made me sore (again, but I am happy to report no issues walking or sitting down), but I felt really strong even the day after that workout. Steve was definitely impressed with my back to back strong workouts. I don’t know if it was the mojito (I am definitely a lightweight and was lucky not to be hung over from one drink) or unhealthy food, but saturday I definitely didn’t feel as perky as usual.
